Timeline from Wikipedia

1965: Encouraged by his friend Anne Briggs he dropped out of college in 1965 to become a member of "The Young Tradition" with Royston Wood and Heather Wood.

1969: The Young Tradition's final concert was at Cecil Sharp House in October 1969, after which they split up, with Bellamy wanting to concentrate on traditional English music, whilst the other members had developed interests in mediaeval music.

1971: In 1971, Bellamy recorded a collaboration with Louis Killen: "Won't You Go My Way?".

1973: Having mastered the art of putting new words to a traditional song and his own words to a traditional tune, he wrote a ballad-opera, The Transports, in 1973, but it took him 4 years to find a company willing to produce it.

1981: The Kipling Society went on to appreciate Bellamy's contribution to Kipling's legacy and he was elected a Fellow of the Kipling Society, becoming a vice-president in 1981.

1991: Bellamy committed suicide on 24 September 1991 in Keighley, an event that baffled many in the folk music community.

A tragic waste of a fine singer and writer IMHO
